|Buddy Hield: Launches 13 threes off bench|
Hield finished Wednesday's preseason game with 11 points (4-16 FG, 3-13 3Pt), five rebounds and three assists.
The Scoop: As was the case in Monday's exhibition opener, Hield came off the bench as the Kings rolled with De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton in the backcourt with Harrison Barnes starting at the three. It's unclear if this is how coach Luke Walton will proceed during the regular season, but it would be a change of pace for Hield, who started all 71 of his appearances in 2020-21. The Oklahoma product did not appear overly bothered by the move to the bench, as he attempted 13 three-pointers in just 22 minutes of action. For fantasy purposes, Hield is perennially among the league leaders in made three-pointers, and he also offers decent rebounding and assists production to go with a solid free throw percentage.
